Post Your Other Projects!

I figured this might be a fun topic, let's see what everyone does that isn't work on their bikes!

It can be threads from other forums, photos of what you just got done doing, etc. Build a bar? Post it up! Homemade pogo stick? Bring it on. Hot rods to mopeds? Go for it.

Just got done doing a short shifter kit with a SRT 10 Viper truck Hurst shifter in my Cummins. Designed a custom adapter to make it work. Have a read to kick it off if you're interested!

Other projects, well, I work on my Yamaha, but it is weather dependent also. So is the Mustang. I did just finish building my own computer. And my son has started playing with his own small forge, so we do that.

Right on my old man and I have built a few computers, he does all of his own tech stuff, a lot of which is even over my head. That forge is awesome!!

I was easier than I thought it would be. There is so much information out there anymore, and youtube videos! Got a $2500 system for around $1300. There is a website that helps with picking parts, making sure you have no conflicts. Was fun in the end, but it is huge! I didn't pay enough attention to the case size when I picked it lol!

That was like the third firing of it. He is already on to upgrades and plans, but a out of town trip for work slowed him down.

Had this going on last week...the winter toy...wrecked into a tree at the end of last year. Had to replace control arms, rebuild shock, and I ended up putting a performance silencer in there while I was at it.

Broke her legs good...

I'm in the middle of converting a Coke machine into a gun safe. Bought a non working one last weekend for $40 and cleaned out to insides within a few hours. Inside dimensions are 52h x 27w x 16d. Plus there's another 12 x 27 x 18 area below the former dispensing space. Auto carpeting the inside and putting in a shelving unit. Adding an extra slide lock to the inner door and vibration sensing alarm to ward off the amature criminals. Keeping the light on the front panel for show. Pics to follow.

1-Up yourself and have it still dispense beverages (maybe not soda...)! Keep it looking legit and would be criminals would walk right past it without giving it a second thought.

I thought about making little pics of my guns for the dispensing buttons but that would defeat the purpose of making it look like nothing but a coke machine.

Shown below is an adapter plate I made from billet 7075 Aluminium alloy to mount a '72 V6 Ford Capri motor to a '90 Land Rover 5-speed transmisson and Range Rover tranfer case. This drivetrain is mounted in my 1963 Land Rover. The modern RR transfercase single stick operating lever was converted to old Land Rover style 2 lever operation. That took quite some time and prototypes to figure it all out but looking from the cabin interior it all looks like it's 1963.
I do all my designing and fabricating. If I don't have the skills, I study and train.

Project is ready for Tech Inspection to make it all road-legal. After that there's a lot of cosmetics on the car that requires some attention.

The plan is to drive this for one year to work out all snags. Next year, take the '72 2.6L Ford out and replace with a fuel injected '92 4.0L for some real torque. Should be a straight swap except for wiring and exhaust system.
